Dex the Bilby
Lauren Hackney lives in Manly; a seaside suburb of Brisbane, with her husband, two creative boys, chickens, fish, cockatiels and their recently adopted dog. Together, they love exploring, travelling, trying new things, laughing and being amongst nature. Another pastime of theirs is storytelling. Whether it be a bedtime story, a campfire story or a road trip story – they love discovering where the stories lead.
For many years, Lauren worked in aviation, but she now takes stories on high-flying adventures through the power of magic and imagination.
Her first book is The Lolly Shop – a delicious collaboration with her two sons.
